Coalition Union Brothers and Sisters,

Good news. Your hard work has paid off. Under the Performance Sharing Plan (PSP), our qualifying union members will receive a final payout based on the 2016 performance goals reached by each medical center and regional operation in the Kaiser Permanente Southern California region.

Your Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Union leaders worked to ensure that your PSP performance would be rewarded—and protected from external market forces out of the control of workers. As a result, the connection between your performance and your rewards remains strong. You will get specific information about your performance-based payout in the coming weeks.

Our partnership with Kaiser Permanente has lasted 20 years with a dedicated union workforce, operating at every level of success. We intend to continue with steady growth of KP’s underlying business and good, union jobs.

Stay committed. Perform at your highest level. Continue to advocate for the support you need, and reap the rewards you’ve earned.

In unity,

Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, AFL-CIO—Southern California
